. for beingso much here. let's talk about what we learned last week and president obama talking about the potential of a chemical weapons. evan mcmorris-santoro, where we add in this? why is the white house's stance significant? guest: there has been a lot of debate. the obama administration said a few months ago, they drew the proverbial red line about chemical weapons, the idea that of chemical weapons were used, they would cross the line and we would see engagement. that is what people read about that. there were reports that some chemical weapons may have been used. shortly thereafter, the white house was engaged on that and some observers felt they change the way the red line works. the white house says it was a systematic use. we're seeing a lot of discussion about persian towards what might be u.s. involvement. it's unfair to say that will happen or not. the white house is now talking about using chemical weapons and what it means for how the united states in gauges. host: the associated press has this headline -- obama's syrian caution. one of the conversations going on in con
to do it. >> president obama in mexico city talking about immigration reform. that is front and center next yeek. back with the panel. mara, where do you think we stand and the bill of the gang of eight stands. >> i think the bill is resilient and there are head wind and big pockets of republican recestance. but i am impressed by the depth of the coalition behind it. business community and conservative activist and entire republican establishment and marco rubio and i think it is chugging along and pass the senate and will be the house to pass citizen does that have a path to citizenship or not. the president was cheer in the press conference, he will not sign something without a pass for citizenship. i think we are going to end up with something. it is one of those rare things that are in the party's political interest to do and that's why i think it will get done. >> senator reid trying to do everything to get it across the finish line. you will have stiff opposition in the house and senator sessions in the senate, where do you think it stands . >> it is it in pretty good shape. it w
chemical weapons more than four times against the civilians. >> president obama has talked about red lines. >> yes. >> do you think bashar al assad has crossed a red line? >> not just for one time. many, many times he crossed the red line. >> what do you hope the united states does? >> i like them to help us to have no-fly zone for the whole country. >> nbc news chief foreign correspondent, richard engel joins me from turkey. richard, interesting interview. i've seen reporting on both sides that there wasn't proper custody control over some of the evidence as it was brought across the borders. that some samples were left in someone's car trunk for a number of days. are you persuaded about the evidence? or is it too early to tell what the allied intelligence services really believe is the case? >> i think it's very early to tell and i think it's probably impossible to assume that the rebels are going to treat materials and some sort of scientific or sanitary way. to give you an example, they believe that there was a chemical attack a few days ago in a town of sarakeb. at the same time of wh
about long term problems, we would be thinking about the long term unemployment. obama has talked about this somewhat but that is not where washington's mindset is right now. >> you mentioned manufacturing. zero gain there. in other areas, professional business services, leisure, hospitality, 43,000. that may improve over the summer. health care, 19,000. construction, lost 6,000. government lost 11,000. are those losses, you mentioned government. is the construction number the result of sequester? >> there's been a lougs boom. whether or not that will continue after such a low base. the other thing to look into these number is that professional business services, a lot of these are really, really poorly paid jobs. yes, you have a job if you have 26,000 a year, but that, too, is something we should think about. what is the wage level. not the unemployment rate. the wage level of an employed person. >> when governor perry was running for president, he touted texas a lot, apply home state. what he was remiss in saying is you have people who were employed but were in low waning jobs and man

" today. do we have the graphic. in the areas he does control, obama has to talk less about hurdles he faces and more forcefully about what he's going to get. where does he go now? where can he move on this stuff? >> think it's hard for him to move. i love e.j. he's a genuine friend not one of those people you say is your friend. he's a rell frieal friend. i agree with him all the time. we're beating on this president when you have to go back to that pat toomey quote go guns that shows liberal fantasies about how the president has to get back in the game, be tougher, make better deals, it is not going to work. he's really got people who are determined to see him fail. i do agree with the tone, however. the tone of late has been little wi whinier than we would like to hear. in terms of what he can do, it's hard. >> there seems to be this sort of mindset from him, you said whining but this sort of i'm done with it. you see the way the people treat me. what am i supposed to do? that's not good for democrats to have that opinion in 2013. >> this is always been something of his approach. he

at about 10:00 eastern. up next, we will take you to the 50 minute news conference, president obama talking to the news reporters in the press room. president obama: hello, everybody. hello. good afternoon -- or good morning, everybody. i am here to answer questions in honor of ed henry, as he wraps up his tenure as president of the white house correspondents' association. ed, because of that, you get the first question. congratulations. >> thank you, sir. i really appreciate that. and i hope we can go back to business and being mad at each other in a little bit. president obama: i'm not mad at you. >> ok. thank you. i appreciate it. president obama: you may be mad at me. [laughter] >> i'm not. [laughter] a couple questions on national security. on syria, you said that the red line was not just about chemical weapons being used but being spread, and it was a game changer, seemed cut and dry. and now your administration seems to be suggesting that line is not clear. do you risk u.s. credibility if you don't take military action? and then on benghazi, there are some survivors of that terror
it works for those guys but not barack obama. that astounds me. but let's talk about the immigration idea what he has been saying on immigration. we know how it plays in congress. how is it playing in texas? >> um, as you know, as a lot of people know, one of rick santorum's problems besides the fact that he had foot-in-mouth disease in the last campaign, was that he was relatively soft from the point of view from the right, his own party on immigration. he was a relatively moderate on immigration. so was george bush. you look at john mccain, who has had a variety of positions over the years but effectively is a nuanced and informed position on immigration. you get these people along the border and many folks along the border, not everybody but many political folks along the border in states like texas understand that the immigration issue is much more difficult and nuanced. there are family connections. there are economic connections. so you have in most cases not in the case of cruz, but in the case of many of these candidates the greater recognition of the value of immigration. withexc
re-talking about? are we talking about the barack obama that his -- the administration raised the fee for citizenship application to get back down again? don't get me started. i can go low sides on this because these politicians, that's my point, have moved them play this game like checkers or chess when it suits their interest in suits their politics. it's not just john mccain. >> i will tell what barack obama we are talking about. we are talking about the president obama that just won a re-election with 71% of the latino vote and understands there is a dead and we will not let him off the puck. i think it's a president obama who no longer has realm and manual as a chief of staff telling him it's too politically costly for you to do this in your first term. i think the president barack obama who wants a legacy and understand that this can be a major point for his legacy. to the point where he is stepping back. the question you asked antonio, if president obama had done what he said he was going to do and luis knows this and crossed his own legislation on congress to say here is my bi
. laffer, good to have you with us. things are coming up. roses around here and everybody is talking, they are so dour and concerned. what is going on? >> you have a slow recovery. that is there. really the thing i think is wonderful, obama has lost his ability to materially effect legislation and bad policies. we have to live with his policies but i'm looking forward 2014, 2016 and seeing a bright future for the u.s.. >> lou: that is fascinating perspective. do you believe -- >> yeah. all his big stuff occurred when he was the house and senate. now, he doesn't have that same power. frankly i don't think he can push through bad legislation like he used to. that is good sign for the country. sooner or later we're going to get rid of obamacare almost entirely. its terrible program. it's hurting the economy. that is why we have a slow growth and recovery. once that is gone you will see a boom in this economy like never before. >> lou: we'll take a look at a revealing poll in the next segment. it's kaiser came out with a new poll on obamacare. it's amazing. it's confident with what would
